Before we approached Sandra for help, we had already had one set of lovely architectural plans drawn up, but the scheme proved to be too expensive for us.
Sandra helped us with our project right through to completion. She has provided us with an excellent, competitively priced service. She provided numerous options for obtaining what we wanted at varying levels of budget. The options came with useful images, so we could really see what it would look like. As well as providing the necessary technical expertise, she has a pragmatic outlook with an understanding of what is needed in a family home.
She was also quick to point out when we came up with ‘pie in the sky’ ideas that would have been costly or impractical. The result is that our house has been transformed into a well planned, spacious family home within our intended budget.
We decided to look into design and planning consent for our house in early 2011 meeting with two architects with sizeable practices in the South East of England.
Whilst they were professional people we did not feel comfortable that they had captured the look and feel of design that we wished to pursue and initial ideas were rather bland and boring. There was much concern and focus that we needed to make sure that we had the correct design that was creative and sensitive to our ideas and apart from having a good track record with the planning department. A friend highly recommended Sandra Lynch to us as they had work done that they extolled greatly.
Within a short time we met Sandra and initial ideas and concepts discussed. Those first discussions were followed up with rough sketches and ideas that we had not thought about and were spot on with the overall concept.
Sandra’s work is to be highly praised, as is her ability to really understand client needs; throughout the design and planning submission process Sandra held our hand and thought of all the potential miner fields that could have been uncovered. We would highly recommend Sandra Lynch, sensitive to design, and operationally the consummate professional.
We will be using Sandra again on a new project in the very near future.
My husband and I had a fairly good idea of what we wanted to achieve but not how to get the best from the building and how to get over the various challenges in trying to achieve all we hoped for as our house was a bit of a mish-mash. Sandra went to great lengths to make sure she understood our remit. She was patient, came up with good ideas and solutions and very was knowledgeable. She is an excellent communicator and steered us efficiently through the whole (potentially stressful) process from start to finish with relative ease.
I would happily recommend her and enjoyed working with her.
Having met Sandra nearly 20 years ago, she has helped us on numerous occasions with the plans for the extensions to our home. Sandra has been the catalyst that made our ideas into reality.
She took on board our thoughts, provided positive solutions and came up with exactly the right solution that suited us as a family. She dealt with all the planning and the bits that we have no idea of how to deal with and was there at the end of the phone whenever we had questions.
Over the years we have built up a great relationship and she goes to great lengths to source information for my new ideas and projects.
As Sandra has been in the industry for many years she has great contacts and I trust her judgement implicitly. I know with Sandra on board our next project will be a success. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing architectural services.
After searching, with no avail, in a preferred area for our ideal home, we decided to buy a property that required renovating and extending.
We commissioned Sandra to prepare plans for planning and building regulation approvals. She worked extremely hard pulling our ideas together and advised us of possible room layouts and potential savings.
With Sandra’s practical experience with Structural Engineers, Building Control and the Building Trade she thought every aspect through at the planning stage. This pulled the project together; knowledge that we had not realised would be so valuable.
We cannot thank Sandra enough for the help she has given us from the start to finish of our project. We would not hesitate to recommend Sandra as her standards of detail are very high.
